Jerry Neil Snipes


Jerry Neil Snipes, age 69, of Lewistown, Ohio passed away peacefully at 11:40 a.m. March 30, 2022, at home surrounded by his family.

He was born in Prestonsburg, Kentucky January 8,1953, a son of the late Joseph Gail  and Lema Mae (Dotson) Snipes. In addition to his parents, Jerry was preceded in death by two grandchildren, Jayden and Charlotte and two sisters, Judith Snipes and infant sister, Caroline Snipes.

Jerry married the former Susan McWilliams April 24, 1991 in Arkansas and she survives along with their five children, Dawn Snipes, Nikki (John) Shaner, Amanda (Rocky) Swonguer, Josh (Tonia) Amonds, and Nona Amonds; 15 grandchildren, Ashlyn, Kaitlyn, Riley, Bennett, McKenzie, Mahalie, Dakota, Alexis, Addison, Jordyn, Everleigh, Taisley, Kasch, Tamarra, and Kanayn; a sister, Janice (Donald) Spangler; two brothers, Larry (Lynne) Snipes and William Snipes; and many nieces and nephews.

Jerry had a deep love for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and was proud of the Reach Out Outreach Teen Ministry he and his wife helped operate. He was always concerned for the well-being of others and would fix anything for anyone in need. When Jerry was not serving others, he could be found reading the Bible, fishing, tinkering with his tractor, and spending quality time with his grandkids.

A celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
